is vital that we train teachers to minister effectively in the classroom.
a children's minister with 30 years of experience, I am convinced one of
the major factors in teacher burnout is vision. Teachers, even teachers
with great ability need vision. Often that vision can dim with time and
the daily grind of the hard work that is necessary for effective ministry.
But you can keep that vision sharp with regular communication and
me ask you a very important question. When did you last attend a seminar?
When was the last time your or your teachers left a seminar bursting with
excitement? Maybe you plan or attend a seminar once a year...is that really enough?
If you're like most churches, you probably have workers that haven't been to
a seminar in years. What have you
invested in your valuable teachers this year? Do they leave your teacher
meetings inspired or just glad it's over? We can help! And I really mean
understand how busy you are. You have lessons to plan, meeting to attend
and families to nurture. How do you juggle it all? Don't try to do it all
yourself. Let us help. We've been there. We know what it's like to have
all the responsibilities that go with children's ministry! You need an ongoing plan
to build your teachers! You need training that goes beyond skills to inspire
the heart of teachers-that's what we do best. We're passionate about
children's ministry and making the Bible come alive in people's hearts.
You'll feel that passion in every session you hear. Let me tell you about
A plan that really works!
Now you can invest in your teachers every month with a recording by Patricia
Holland that will ignite their passion and sharpen their skills. We send you
the12 master CDs. Copy enough CDs for all your workers.
Save valuable meeting time!
People are busy! It's hard to get people to meetings, even important ones.
This organized training plan eliminates the need for a monthly meeting.
Put all your news in a simple newsletter with the outlines that come with
the teaching. They can listen to the teaching at their convenience, in the car while commuting to/from
work or while doing household chores. They'll want to listen to them again
Make them accountable
People don't do what you expect. They do what you inspect.
Make the training easy and accessible to everyone. Once a month have the teacher's pick up a packet with their
teaching CD and handout. You might want to stick a little treat in the packet
as well to show them your love and appreciation. Have
them listen to the teaching and return the completed handout. (You can find great ideas to make your teachers feel
special on Steve Greer's Appreciation CDs.) Once
a quarter or semi annually have a Teacher Celebration. When they complete the
program give them a certificate of completion made from the master
provided in your packet.
How it Works
You will receive 12 reproducible master teachings on CD , and 12 reproducible handouts. You have
permission to duplicate the CDs and handouts for all the teachers in
your church. For just pennies per
teacher, you can give your teachers a teaching on CD and handout every month that will
build another vital teaching skill and inspire them to minister more effectively. They
will have the CD in their personal library to refer back to again. Your
teachers will want to listen to them again and again. This will increase the
learning curve and the probability that they will put the principals in

could that be possible? Training for experienced and inexperienced teachers?
Sounds like an oxymoron! But these tapes are more than just skills. These
tapes will inspire your teachers and ignite their spiritual passion. Plus
these teachings will reinforce the right things they are already doing in
the classroom. Positive reinforcement works for teachers too! It's a great
feeling to hear your philosophy and methods reinforced.
